Road rage killer Kenneth Noye saunters down the street smiling on the 22nd anniversary of his infamous arrest in Spain.

Noye, 73, went on the run after stabbing 21-year-old Stephen Cameron to death on the M25 in 1996.

He was dramatically snared by detectives in a fishing village two years later with the help of Stephen’s grieving girlfriend Danielle Cable.

Noye was controversially freed from his life sentence in June last year.

He was spotted enjoying the bank holiday sunshine near a railway station in south-east England.

One onlooker said: “He looked very happy and was clearly enjoying the good weather. You could see he didn’t have a single care in the world.

"Despite being in his 70s he still looks really fit and strong.”

Noyes was laughing to himself after a call on his mobile phone.

He became Britain’s most wanted man after murdering Stephen on May 19, 1996.

Police finally tracked him down to Barbate on the Costa del Sol after a two-year international manhunt.

Danielle was flown out by police to identify Noye and he was arrested the following day.

She gave evidence during his trial in 2000.

Noye, who once served a 14-year jail term for handling gold from the Brinks-Mat heist, had previously been cleared of killing an undercover policeman on grounds of self-defence.

He made the same claim in relation to Stephen’s death but jurors convicted him of murder.

He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 16 years in 1999.

We revealed that Noye stayed at his younger lover’s home in the weeks following his release.

Speaking at the time, Stephen’s dad Ken said: “It’s a disgrace. He’s laughing in the face of justice.”

Danielle, who was 17 when Stephen was killed, was given a new identity.
